Built in 1797 as a summer retreat for the aristocracy, and named for an elm that once stood at the heart of the gardens, Villa Olmo is now property of the municipality of Como. Neoclassical in style, the villa is only open during exhibitions, though the lakeside gardens are open to the public at all times. Enjoy a drink at the open-air bar in the garden, or relax on the lawns. Check online to see the schedule of events and exhibits. Only about 2 km (1.3 mi) from the heart of Como, it is an easy walk along the lake to get to the villa. Make Villa Olmo a part of your Como vacation plans using our Como trip itinerary builder app .
Villa Olmo Reviews
Bella e bene organizzata. Ingresso gratuito, a differenza di luoghi di Como che meritano molto di meno. Raggiungibile sia a piedi che con i mezzi pubblici. more »Beautiful and well organized. Free admission, unlike places in Como that deserve much less. Accessible by foot or by public transport.

It always remains free the front Villa with views of the lake where you can enjoy the view, let your dog run around or, as we happened to see, enjoy a nice picnic! If you have more time, it is very characteristic to continue along the long lake promenade overlooking the beautiful villas of Como.
Beautiful villa with a spectacular view of the lake and mountain. There is a fountain and a nice garden in front of the villa.
A must see of Como. Very recommendable for a nice walk or picnic in its back yard. The walk from Como to Villa Olmo presents one of the most beautiful scaneries you can probably find on the lake.
